It’s the culture festival, everyone!

Part 1:

“Yeah, maid uniforms really are the best.”

Right before the first day of the culture festival started, around 8:50 am. Manager Keiki showed a satisfied nod as he stood inside the calligraphy’s cafe. In his view were three girls, all of them wearing cute maid uniforms.

“Though this is the second time Yuika has worn something like this, she still can’t get used to it.”

“This is pretty embarrassing, isn’t it…?”

“No, Nii-san’s passionate gaze actually feels pretty good.”

Yuika was nervously looking down at her appearance, Mao was trying to pull down her uniform’s skirt, and the exibitionist Mizuha’s cheeks were turning slightly red.

“Anyway, I’m glad that you managed to make them in time. Thanks a bunch, Yuika-chan. It must’ve been a lot of work, right?”

“No, Yuika had her own share of fun so it’s fine.”

Yuika had been working on the uniforms at the Kiryuu household sleepover until late at night. She had managed to finish them in time, and with quite high quality, and was proof enough of her skill.

“Still, I never would have thought that Yuika had a talent for sewing.”

“Yuika’s parents taught her how. Both of them work in the clothing business.”

“Ohh, that’s handy.”

“It’s Yuika’s dream to become a picture book author, though.”

“I think that your picture books are a bit too much for children to handle, though…”

“I actually like Yuika-chan’s picture books.”

“……Eh?”

Mao’s face distorted after Mizuha dropped that bombshell.

At first, the girl’s were a bit anxious about wearing maid uniforms, but now they were talking happily among each other. But there was a certain black-haired upperclassman missing from among them…

“In the end, Sayuki-senpai never came, huh…?”

Though Keiki had hoped that the picture he sent her via her mother would bring her back to school, she was nowhere to be found.

Well, this doesn’t change what I have to do.

In order to save the calligraphy club from getting disbanded, they had to earn enough money from this culture festival to repay her debt. That was Keiki’s mission. For Sayuki, and for his comrades who had helped to even reach this starting point, he definitely had to make this maid cafe a success at all costs.

“Nii-san, shouldn’t you be going over to the student council now?”

“Ah, yeah, it’s already time.”

Looking at the clock, he had about 5 minutes left until his job would start. Said job was to walk around the festival and make sure that everything was going as planned.

“Sorry about this. I’m the manager and I’m still leaving you all alone…”

“It’s okay. We’ll watch over the store until you come back.”

“That’s right. We even practiced customer service last night.”

“I’ll actually be able to focus better if the perverted manager isn’t here with us.”

Mizuha, Yuika, and Mao all gave (more or less) encouraging words. The survival of the calligraphy club now rested on their shoulders.

“I’ll be back in the afternoon, so I’ll leave this to you guys.”

“““Have a safe trip!”””

Sent off by these cute maids, the new manager left the room behind him.

This had happened around three hours ago.

Part 2:

“You’re kidding, right…?”

After he finished his job with the student council, what greeted Keiki when he arrived at the maid cafe was a completely empty cafe. It was a total failure. Not a single customer was there. The only people he found were the girls looking at each other in concern. The first person to speak up was Mizuha.

“Okita-sensei, Shouma-kun, and the others came by to eat, but that’s about it…”

“Only people who know us already…”

There was no way that they would be able to earn enough money if just a few friends came by.

“Maybe our location is bad?”

“Yuika thinks so as well. This is the classroom building, so we’re a bit far away from the action.”

If they had gotten a spot near the entrance, the customers would have without a doubt come flocking.

By the way, the cheerleading club’s cafe was near the student entrance. It was truly in an advantageous position, compared to the location of the calligraphy club’s cafe. When it came to location, people would probably come here last, if at all. Since preparing for everything had taken a long time, they couldn’t change location or anything like that in the heat of the moment. If they couldn’t attract customers here, it would be all over. But the biggest problem of them all was—

“Maybe Yuika’s effort really was for nothing…”

“It looks like my posters weren’t as good as I had thought…”

“I guess I didn’t work hard enough on the menu…”

The morale of all the club members had taken a nosedive.

This isn’t good… Everyone’s motivation is going down the drain.

Within their limited timeframe that they had, the girls had worked their hardest to finish their preparations in time. You couldn’t blame them for getting discouraged when they were faced with this situation. But the morale of the waitresses directly affects the efficiency of the store.

As their manager, I have to give them a little pep talk.

Taking care of the idols’ mental health was also a very important job of a manager.

It’s difficult but I have to do this!

With no confidence that he could do it, Keiki turned to look at the girls.

“Everyone, listen up. It’s not your fault that the customers aren’t coming in. It’s because I took this too lightly. I should’ve realized that our position is more than unfavorable.”

The people who had worked hard to decorate the interior and to come up with a good menu weren’t to blame here. The blame lay with Keiki, who had opened the store without thinking about the problematic location, and had left everything in the girl’s hands.

“But, as your manager, I’ll definitely work something out. After all, I have three cute maids here to support me.”

“““Cute…”””

Any girl would be happy to be called cute. When they heard these magical words, the girls immediately reacted.

“Yuika-chan is a flawless beauty, after all,” Keiki added.

“W-Well, of course,” Yuika replied

“Nanjou has a nice style, and your tsundere act really hits close to home,” he said.

“Don’t call me tsundere…” Mao replied with a bashful look on her face.

“Mizuha, your teasing is a bit overboard at times, but I can’t say that I don’t appreciate your openness,” Keiki said.

“R-Really… Nii-san…”

It seemed like Keiki was doing a good job encouraging them.

“Well, that being said, the culture festival has just started, so I’m sure that if we just go full throttle, everything will work out. No doubt it’s a handicap, but let’s focus on how we can get past that.”

“That’s right. We still have time.”

“Yes, it’ll be fine if it’s us!”

“Though it feels a bit weird hearing this from Keiki’s mouth, I guess I can help out.”

As planned, smiles returned to the girls’ faces.

And suddenly, a customer finally arrived.

“—Excuse me~”

“Ah, welcome back!”

Yuika turned around to face the customer with a smile,

“…Eh, it’s just Airi.”

Seeing the person standing there, Yuika let out a sigh. Facing her was the now uniform-wearing Airi.

“What’s with that reaction? I came here as a customer, after all.”

“Ayano-san also came to visit.”

Ayano peeked her head out from behind Airi’s back. With one eye still hidden by her bangs, the student council vice president Ayano Fujimoto waved gently at them.

“So Fujimoto-san came as well.”

“Yeah, I wanted to cheer for you, Kiryuu-kun.”

“Thank you for that. Yuika-chan, can you do the service?”

“Of course. Yuika will show your her everything. Business smile, business smile… Tehe~”

“Ahh, even though it’s totally fake, that’s even better! And this maid uniform is super cute!”

The yuri author Nagase Airi went crazy after seeing Yuika’s business smile.

“Hey, Yuika? Can I take a picture?”

“Ah, pictures with the maids aren’t allowed~”

“No way?!”

“Then, my ladies, here is your seat, if you would.”

The blonde-haired maid guided Airi and Ayano to their seats. While they looked at the menu, Yuika brought them something to drink.

“Are you all ready to order?”

“Umm… Yes, I’ll take the omurice.”

“Ayano-san will have the same.”

“Understood! Mizuha-senpai, two omurice please!”

“Coming right up!”

When the order came in, Mizuha started cooking immediately. In the meantime, the other girls and Keiki could only watch her, bewitched. Just that alone had made the maid uniforms worth it.

“…Hmm, a cooking maid is the best. Or is it Mizuha-senpai’s charm? Not to mention that Nanjou-senpai is just as cute. If the law allowed it, I’d do anything to cop a feel of their butts,” Airi muttered.

“What are you even saying with that serious face…”

The difference between his Kohai’s inside and outside was as tremendous as ever.

In order to make sure that nobody else heard him, Keiki slowly moved closer to Airi and whispered to her.

“Could you not look at my store’s maids with such lustful eyes?”

“No can do. It’s duty to burn Yuika’s maid appearance into my retinas right here and right now.”

“Saying that without restraint is a skill in and of itself…”

Not to mention that her eyes were so serious that even Keiki was almost intimidated.

“Still, you’ve become close enough with her to call her by her given name…”

“It’s thanks to Kiryuu-senpai. Recently, we’ve even been speaking with each other in the classroom.”

“Really? I’m glad to hear that.”

Before, when Airi had told Yuika “I want to be friends with Koga-san,” she had been shot down immediately, and she had asked Keiki for help. Even when Yuika’s plan to make Keiki her slave had been discovered by Airi, that only caught her attention even more.

In the meantime, however, Yuika brought over the finished food.

“Thank you for waiting~”

“Woah, this doesn’t look like food from a maid cafe at all.”

“It looks delicious…”

Both Ayano’s and Airi’s eyes started sparkling when Yuika put the food down on the table.

A golden egg on top of a paper plate. Inside was a healthy amount of chicken. There was even a heart symbol made out of ketchup that the maids had added.

“Here, one for Nii-san as well.”

Mizuha suddenly appeared next to Keiki and handed him an omurice on top of a paper plate. It seemed like she made her older brother one also while she was at it.

“You didn’t eat anything for lunch yet, right?”

“Yes, but we have to think of what to do next before anything else…”

“If you’re stomach’s empty, you won’t be able to come up with anything good, right?”

“…That’s also true… I’m digging in, then.”

Mizuha made Keiki sit down with Ayano and Airi, and he didn’t wait long before putting a spoonful of omurice into his mouth.

“Nii-san, how is it?”

“Mmm, it’s super delicious.”

“So he says. Good for you, Mao-chan.”

“Eh? Nanjou made this?”

Keiki looked over at Mao in surprise, and found her nodding in a flustered manner.

“I mean, I promised you before that I would make some omurice for you…”

“Ahh, yeah you did say something like that…”

It was back when the two of them had gone on a date during summer break to gather data for Mao. She had said that when they were taking a small break in a family restaurant. It seems like Mao was the one who had thought that he should be coming soon, and had started preparing omurice for him.

“Thank you. It really is delicious.”

“…I see. I’m glad, then.”

Though she answered nonchalantly, Keiki still saw her mouth form a slight smile as she turned around. A nice tsundere act that ended up being a good side dish during his lunch.

Shortly after, Keiki finished up the rest of his food, and Airi and Ayano followed soon after, also putting down their spoons, clearly satisfied.

“Thanks for the food. It was very delicious..”

“Yeah, it was tremendously good.”

Seeming to have enjoyed Mizuha’s omurice, the girls had wide smiles on their faces.

“But it seems like you’re still lacking customers.”

“Nagase-san still doesn’t know how to hold back, I see…”

“Are you going to be able to pay back the club budget?”

“Uuuu…”

“It’s not like I’m hung up on disbanding the calligraphy club anymore, you know? But we still can’t let this go unseen without any consequences.”

“I know.”

In that regard, only the calligraphy club was to blame. To be fair, the student council’s decision was rather soft, considering the circumstances.

“Airi, don’t you have any good ideas?”

“Hmmm…”

When Yuika walked over to ask her about it, Airi started thinking deeply, gathering the gazes of every member present.

“How about changing the maid cafe… into a swimsuit cafe?”

“Rejected. Airi, are you an idiot or something?”

“Idiot?!”

That accusation seemed to be quite shocking to Airi.

“The maid uniforms really are cute, but maybe the boys are just too embarrassed to enter?”

“Ah, that might be a thing…”

Any boy would want to see an erotic maid up close. However, he wouldn’t want to look like he only came here because of the erotic uniform. It was quite the dilemma for an adolescent boy indeed. Probably comparable to buying a porn magazine when the cashier is a woman.

“Now that you mention it, the cafe of the cheerleading club is holding back with their uniforms…”

And Airi wasn’t quite done yet.

“Did you even advertise this properly?”

“We did hang out some posters and so forth.”

“That’s not nearly enough. First thing should be to let everyone know that they can find a maid cafe here.”

“A-And how she would go about doing that?”

“You have the perfect opportunity right here with these maid uniforms.”

“Meaning?”

“Make the girls hand out flyers while wearing the maid uniforms?”

“Flyers…”

A completely different method of advertising besides hanging out posters. Personally receiving a flyer from a cute maid might motivate some customers to come over.

“But we can’t just leave the store unattended… Two people would have to stay behind to cook and take orders.”

“““……”””

Following the manager’s words, a fierce battle of rock-paper-scissors ensued.

“The calligraphy maid cafe is waiting for your arrival on the first floor of the special classroom building! Please come see it if you have the time!”

Beneath the clear autumn sky, in front of the student entrance, Yuika was currently working her hardest to give out as many flyers to male students as possible.

“Haah… If only Yuika had used rock in that last round, she would’ve won…”

“That’s rock-paper-scissors for you. You’ll never know what you should pick until it’s over.”

The fierce battle ended with Yuika as the loser. Using the PC’s in a nearby IT room, they had printed out flyers, and now Yuika was handing them out with Keiki.

“But thanks to Yuika-chan, we’re distributing a lot of flyers. Those maid uniforms really work wonders.”

“It’s not like Yuika likes being stared at, though.”

“That just shows how cute you are.”

“If she’s that cute, will you become her slave?”

“That’s a no from me, captain.”

“……Shit.”

“What did you just say?!”

“Hmph, Yuika doesn’t care about Keiki-senpai anymore.”

Acting like her mood had been spoiled by Keiki, Yuika averted her gaze.

“The shop interior is one thing, but walking around outside with these maid clothes is pretty embarrassing, you know? This job is more fit for the hardcore masochistic Witch-senpai.”

“Yeah, I’m sure that Sayuki-senpai would have gladly taken this job.”

“…Really, it just feels weird not having her around.”

“Yuika-chan…”

Normally, Yuika would always be engaged in fierce battle against her arch-nemesis Sayuki, but she seemed to miss her a bit as well. However, they were in the middle of work, and couldn’t dwell in memories. Their first priority was to attract new potential customers—

“Hello! We’re doing a maid cafe, so if you have the time, please come visit—Eh?”

Yuika had been about to hand over a flyer to the next person, but upon seeing their appearance, her hand immediately came to a halt.

A big round head, with equally round ears. Their body was covered by a thick, brown hide—

““…A bear?””

Exactly. Someone in a big bear costume was standing in front of them. Though it wasn’t exactly weird to see someone cosplay, a big bear costume certainly was different.

Of course, the two couldn’t hide their surprise. The bear, however, turned towards Yuika and held out one of its paws.

“Eh? You want… A flyer?”

“………Nod

“Umm… Here you go…?”

Accepting the flyer, the bear bowed to Yuika and went on its way again.

“…What was that about?”

“…I don’t have any idea.”

In the end, all they could do was ponder about it for a bit, and resume their work of handing out flyers.

After they had finished handing out the flyers, their customer traffic grew a bit more in number.

“But this still isn’t exactly the situation we were hoping for…”

They still only had a handful of customers.

“Even now, Yuika can man the floor alone.”

“Yeah…”

The store currently was empty enough that Mao could even slack off if she wanted to. Keiki had been planning on buying new ingredients once the food ran out, but sadly, he didn’t have to worry about that right now.

“…I guess we’ll have to hand out flyers one more time?”

“I’d recommend trying it in front of the gym hall.”

“Yeah, that makes sense—Eh?”

When a voice that didn’t belong to Mao answered him, Keiki turned around, and was greeted by—

“Takasaki-senpai? And Rinko, too.”

“Heyho! We’re taking a break right now, so we thought that we would get some delicious belated dinner.”

“Hello there!”

The student council president Takasaki Shiho, with her hair as long and wavy as ever. And the student council’s secretary Mitani Rin, the boy who acted like a girl who had a short haircut.

Both of them seemed to be coming to visit as normal customers.

“…I guess the student council really doesn’t have any boys…”

Mao was standing next to them, grumbling something to herself. It seemed like she had no idea that Rin was actually a boy. Of course, seeing through it would be pretty impossible with his girly looks, but he was indeed a man. Wearing a girl’s uniform was nothing more than a hobby for him. During the times he was in his girl persona, Keiki called him ‘Rinko’, and ‘Rintarou’ if it not.

I’ll keep quiet about Mitani being a boy for now. If Mao finds out, he’ll definitely be turned into doujin material…

A beautiful boy like him, who you could even mistake for a girl, would probably be perfect material for the fujoshi. A while ago, she had been talking about adding another male character, and Rin really might end up as a model for the ‘Shortcake Series’.

“Anyway, I’ll lead you to your seats. Nanjou, can you get them something to drink?”

“Okay~”

Sending Mao away, the manager guided the two of them to an open table. The two of them ended up also ordering an omurice from menu. While they were waiting for the food, their gazes wandered over to the three maids walking around in the store.

Yuika was serving customers with a smile. Mizuha was clearly enjoying herself as she made the omurice portions. Mao was measuring out some coffee. Being able to watch the maids work like this is precisely what makes a maid cafe shine.

“The maid uniforms all look so cute. I’d love to try one on, as well.”

“I did wear one back at a middle school culture festival.”

“I’m sure you didn’t complain back then…”

“So Rin-chan, who do you like the most out of the three of them?”

“Hmm… They’re all cute, sure, but I’d probably take the cooking maid. She’s got a good pair of breasts, after all.”

“Hey, don’t look at my little sister like that.”

Although he looked like a girl, Rin had a boy’s heart, and loved breasts as much as everybody else.

“By the way, Keiki-kun. I heard from Airi that the management of your cafe isn’t going as well as you’d like.”

“It’s a shame, yes. I’d like to get more customers in, but I can’t think of much to do about it. Do you have any ideas?”

“Hmm…”

Shiho put one hand on her cheek as she looked around the store.

“Most of the people that come here are boys, right?”

“It’s a maid cafe, after all. The menu is also made with boys in mind.”

“Then how about trying to get more female customers?”

“Female customers, huh…?”

It was true that Keiki and the others were hoping to gather boys with this cafe. But around half of the students at the school were still girls, so you couldn’t deny their existence.

“I was over at the cheerleading club’s cafe, and they had a lot of female customers.”

“They prepared a lot of delicious sweets, after all.”

“Sweets, huh…?”

Girls did seem to really love their sweets.

And also, the cheerleading club really is amazing…

It seemed like their marketing skills far surpassed those of amateurs. They had good costumes as well as a well-balanced menu, which clearly earned them the amount of customers they had.

“How about we try adding some sweets to the menu as well, Keiki-kun?”

“Making sweets just like that seems pretty difficult to me. Leaving everything to Mizuha would cost us a lot of time, as well as being a huge burden for her, so if there was something quick and easy to make…”

“Ah, then I might have a good idea for you.”

“What?”

“Something easy to make! How about pancakes? I really love them, so I make them at home!”

“Pancakes… That might be a good idea, yeah.”

A very delicious sweet, and easy to make. They don’t require any weird spices or anything, and it’s something that people could buy while just passing through.

“…All right! I’m going out for a bit to buy the ingredients!”

And thus, they tried making some pancakes. They mixed up some pancake powder with eggs and milk to create the dough and poured three small pancakes onto the griddle. After taking them off and putting them on plastic plates, they garnished them with whatever they wanted, like honey, cream, chocolate, and such—

“The mini pancakes are done!”

“I see. This is really easy to make.”

“They’re pretty simple to make and still very delicious.”

“They even look a bit cute, so I’m sure that the guys will like them.”

Yuika, Mao, and Mizuha all gave their impressions.

“It’s nice that we can put so many different things on them.”

“Yeah, I think that the girls would be pretty happy about this menu.”

After finished off their omurice, Rin and Shiho also gave their approval.

“Alright, then let’s add this to the menu!”

They wrote ‘Mini Pancakes’ on the menu and even added a small sticker that read ‘We have pancakes now!’ to draw attention to it.

“…Alright!”

Not long after that, their advertisement started bearing fruit. Aside from the occasional male customer, a large number of female customers started arriving. Around noon, the amount of girls grew much greater in number. Along with the omurice, the small, cute, and easy to eat pancakes quickly grabbed the hearts of the girls, and it turned into quite the popular product.

“Amazing, Keiki-senpai!”

“It seems like Nii-san’s plan worked out.”

“The ones who came up with the idea were Takasaki-senpai and Mitani, though.”

Thanks to the two girls from the student council, they had managed to attract a lot of female customers. Though they couldn’t relax just yet, it was definitely a significant improvement.

“…Umm, Keiki-senpai?”

“Mmm?”

Someone tugged on his sleeve, and Keiki glanced over there to see Yuika pointing at the entrance.

“Eh…?”

“I-Isn’t that the person from before…?”

The customer who had just stepped into the store was the bear they had met before.

“Welcome back… Master… Mistress… Ehhh…?”

Of course, Mao wasn’t sure how to greet the customer.

“…Bear-sama?”

In the end, she decided on that.

“I-I’ll be guiding you to your seat, then.”

Somehow managing to force out a smile, the brownish red-haired maid took the bear to an open table, and the bear sat down. He then started looking at the menu in his hands. The sight was so unreasonably absurd that even the other guests around him couldn’t help but stare.

“Ah, it seems like Bear-sama is ready to order.”

“I wonder what he’s going to order?”

“He’s gotta take the pancakes with honey, right?”

Keiki and the others were watching the bear in anticipation, but what he pointed at on the menu was—

“Ahh, the omurice. I see. Please wait a moment.”

“Why the omurice…?”

The bear completely ignored everyone’s imaginations. As Mao returned back to the group, she let out an exasperated sigh.

“Really, what’s wrong with this bear?”

“We saw him earlier when we were handing out flyers, too.”

“Eh, really?”

Whatever the circumstances, Mizuha hurriedly started working on the omurice the bear had ordered, and once that was finished, Mao walked over to him with the order in hand.

“…How is the bear even going to eat that?”

Normally, someone wearing the costume would have to take off the head part, but the bear didn’t show any intention of doing so. Instead, he just stared blankly at the food in front of him. After a brief moment of silence, the bear suddenly put his hands on the head part, lifting it up barely enough to fit the spoon in there, and started eating the omurice.

“Are you serious…?”

“At least take it off while you’re eating…”

“Maybe he just doesn’t want to destroy the dreams of children…”

“It looks more like he’s trying to do that, though…”

And while the workers conversed about this, the bear was happily eating his meal. After that nightmare-like scene, the bear paid for the meal and left the store as if nothing had happened.

“What was that about, really…?”

A bear had requested a flyer and eaten an omurice. It was the weirdest thing Keiki had seen all day. The Bear-sama’s mysteries were deep indeed.

The time was close to 3pm in the afternoon. Having become the one responsible for the pancakes, Manager Kiryuu was now heading to a nearby toilet, and he coincidentally met up with a former customer from before.

“Oh? It’s Keikun-senpai.”


“Rinko? …No, you’re Rintarou now.”

He had been wearing a girl’s uniform and skirt earlier, but now he was clothed in a normal boy’s uniform.

“As I thought. It really feels weird to see you wearing pants like that.”

“I can’t go into the toilet here while wearing a skirt, so I have to change first.”

“Yeah, I can already imagine the rukus you’d cause.”

While they chatted, Keiki also finished his business, and lined up next to Rin to wash his hands as well.

“Say, Rintarou, do you have any more patrolling shifts today?”

“Nope. Now I’m helping my class with their own stuff.”

“Oh yeah, Nagase-san was also helping with that. She was the receptionist wearing that cute cosplay.”

“Nagase-san was wearing cosplay? I would’ve loved to see that.”

Rin said this with a sad expression, and they were about to leave the toilet when…

“…Hmm?”

They laid eyes on a small living creature that was sitting on the hallway floor.

“A frog…?”

A bright green frog was sitting next to an open window.

“Ahh, it must’ve come in through the window. But leaving it here like this would be bad, so I guess we’ll help it get out again.”

“……”

“Rintarou?”

When he glanced over at his strangely quiet Kouhai, he found him completely frozen in place.

“You look a bit pale. Are you okay?”

“I-I’m not okay… I’m really bad with frogs… and any slippery living beings in general!”

“You’re really just like a girl…”

“Ah, did it just move?! …S-Save… Save me!”

“W-Woah, Rintarou?!”

The frog slightly moved, and the terrified Kouhai suddenly clung to Keiki.

Haah… If only he was a girl, I would actually be happy about this…

However, he was a man.

Being hugged by someone of the same gender like this didn’t make Keiki happy at all. And while this was happening, the frog started moving towards them.

“Hya?! W-Why’s he suddenly coming over here?!”

With absolutely no ill intent whatsoever, the frog just happened to climb onto Rin’s shoe.

“…Eh? No way?! Is he—”

In the next moment, he was already inside Rin’s pants.

“Noooooooooooooo?! Ahhhh, this slippery, wet feeling is so disgusting!!! Take it out! Take it out please!”

“H-Hey, Rintarou?! Calm down for a second!”

Instead of listening to Keiki, Rin frantically started taking off his pants—

“Ah?!”

The pants legs got hung up near his knees, and he fell face-first to the floor. He was on all fours now, and his butt, only covered by his boxers, was in plain view. It was quite the sexy sight. But since the person in question was still a boy, Keiki couldn’t enjoy this sight at all, and just walked towards him.

“Ahh, come on, I’ll take it off you, so don’t move!”

“P-Please…!”

As he had promised, Keiki carefully picked up the frog and put it down on the floor again. In response, it just hopped off somewhere.

“Look, it’s gone. Are you okay?”

“Y-Yes… Thank you very much…” Rin said, his breathing rough, and tears forming in his eyes.

In that moment, Keiki heard something fall down behind him. Turning around, he spotted the maid-uniform-clad Nanjou Mao, who had just dropped her container of milk on the floor. Her shoulders were shaking violently.

“Nanjou?”

“K-Kiryuu… W-What are you doing…?!”

“Eh…?”

For a second, Keiki was confused by Mao’s weird behaviour, but—

“…Ah?!”

When Keiki realized what she was staring at, the alarm cells in his brain started blaring.

A beautiful looking boy, with his pants pulled down, sweating furiously.

Behind his back, another boy with a relieved expression. There’s only one conclusion that a fujoshi like Mao could arrive at.

“To think that Kiryuu is drilling his way into a beautiful boy like this?!”

“I’m not drilling into anything!”

As expected, what came out of her mouth was the worst possible misunderstanding.

“What if I poured some of my milk onto you…?”

“Stop?!”

Keiki let out a desperate scream to stop the fujoshi, who had just picked up her milk.

“Rintarou! Her ability to reason is getting dangerously low, so hurry up and put on your pants.”

“Ah, yes… What was that about her ability to reason?”

Rin hurriedly pulled his pants on with a confused expression on his face.

“And why are you even here, Nanjou?”

“Well, we ran out of milk, so I went to get some…”

“What kind of bad timing is that…?”

Since their classroom that they were using for the store didn’t have a refrigerator, they had to borrow the cooking classroom’s to store everything.

“Wait, aren’t you the girl from the student council from before?! Did you suddenly turn into a boy?!”

“No, I’ve been a boy from the very start.”

“Nani?! To think that I would mistake a boy for a girl…?!”

Rather, it would’ve been better for her to have that misunderstanding forever. But, of course, Mao wouldn’t listen to that request anyway.

“Well, whatever. Who were you again? Mitani or something?”

“Ah, yes. I’m Mitani Rin…”

“Mitani, how close are you to Kiryuu?”

“Well, he saw me naked once.”

“Naked?!”

“And he even touched my crotch.”

“Crotch?!”

“No, it’s not like I touched it of my own accord…”

To show Keiki that he was indeed a man, Rin had taken his hand on the day of the pool cleaning and pushed it against his own crotch. It was the worst possible experience for Keiki.

“Fu fu fu… Here it is! Here it is!!! I’ve decided to make you the new character!”

With a rotten laugh, the pervert pointed at Rintarou. The fujoshi must’ve been in high spirits after finding a new model for her BL manga and doujinshi.

“Uhm… New character… for what?”

“Just ignore her. She can be a bit weird in the head from time to time.”

Just imagining Rin participating in all this BL doujinshi stuff made Keiki’s head ache. Not to mention that he already had to worry about the cafe right now.

Part 3:

Around 4pm in the afternoon, the first day of the culture festival came to an end. Now that cleaning was next on their agenda, the members changed and all went to clean their respective areas of the room. Keiki for his part was currently using a calculator to check how much money they had made that day, offsetting the costs for the food and ingredients.

“Nii-san. I’ve finished cleaning the kitchen area.”

“Same here. The floor’s done.”

“Hehe, an easy victory for Yuika.”

“Ohh, good work everyone.”

Thanks to everyone’s efforts, the cleaning was done fairly quickly.

“You all must be tired from your long work day, right? You all can go home now and rest.”

“What about Nii-san?”

“It seems like it’ll take a bit longer here.”

“Really? I’ll go home and make dinner, then.”

Entering the self-made staffroom, the girls took their bags, and left.

“Then Yuika will be going now.”

“See you tomorrow~”

“Nii-san. Don’t push yourself too hard, okay?”

“Yeah. You all just go home without making any detours, okay?”

After sending the girls off, Keiki’s gaze returned back to the situation shown on the desk.

“Now then…”

His ‘It’ll take a bit longer’ just now was actually a lie. His work was already done. The reason why he couldn’t tell them was because the number shown on the memo was far too heartbreaking.

“It’s not good at all. To think that we still can’t repay the debt…”

Although they had just barely managed to get out of the red, they were far from the desired amount. This was what had resulted from handing out flyers and making sweets, and it had greatly helped their income. However, that was only barely enough for them to avoid ending up in the red. The overall situation was still as disastrous as before. Not to mention the costs for the costumes and the dough for the pancakes…

“If it goes like this again tomorrow, it’ll all be over…”

To put it simply, they wouldn’t be able to earn enough money if they didn’t get at least twice the amount of customers they had today. And Keiki was painfully aware of that, since he had gone over it multiple times.

“If only I came up with a better plan…”

In this tight schedule, the girls were working hard for the cafe, even though all the while they were sleep-deprived. Even today, they had been working almost the whole time without taking a single break. Keiki felt responsible for the fact that even with all this, they still hadn’t made enough.

“Isn’t there… Some better method…?”

Something he could change before the store opened tomorrow. A plan that would attract even more people than today. If he didn’t manage to do that, the calligraphy club would be disbanded for sure.

“Disbanded…”

He pictured the scene of Tokihara Sayuki, crying. If she lost the club, she would cry once again. Just like that one night—

“……!”

Thinking that, tears started building up in his eyes.

He was frustrated by his own incompetence, frustrated by his own weakness, and frustrated because, at this rate, all the hard efforts of his comrades would all be for nothing—

“What… Should I do now…?”

Resting himself on the table to hide his face, he just sighed. And suddenly, in his depressed mood, a handkerchief suddenly appeared on the table.


“—Eh?”

Maybe one of the club members hadn’t gone home yet?

When he lifted his head, he was greeted by the bear costume blankly staring at him.

“Uwaaaaa?!”

Keiki jumped up from the chair out of shock. Probably scared by that, the bear hurriedly ran out of the classroom.

“Why is Bear-sama…?”

Lost by the current situation, Keiki instead gazed at the handkerchief on the table.

“…Did he come here to cheer me up?”

But he didn’t understand why a person wearing a bear costume would do that. Just happening to spot Keiki as he trotted through the school building sounded too coincidental. Thinking about it, that bear had been weird from the very beginning. He didn’t speak a single thing when he asked for Yuika’s flyer, and he had finished eating the omurice without taking off his head. As if the person inside wanted to hide their identity.

“No way—”

When a certain possibility ran through Keiki’s mind, he dashed out of the room. A little ways down the hall, he spotted his target.

“Wait a second!”

“……!”

Instead of listening to Keiki’s request, the bear instead started running away. However, since Keiki wasn’t wearing a costume like the bear, the bear was too slow as it ran away. As a result, he couldn’t escape Keiki, and was pushed into the corner of the hallway.

“You’re as athletic as ever—”

Keiki said, as he put both his arms on the bear’s head.

“—Sayuki-senpai.”

“…So you found me out.”

The person hiding inside the bear costume was none other Tokihara Sayuki. As if she felt awkward because of this sudden reveal, she averted her gaze as she pouted.

“Why are you even wearing a bear costume?”

“…I mean, meeting you face-to-face would’ve been way too embarrassing.”

“What do you mean?”

“You brought over a photo yesterday, right?”

“Ah yes. I see you brought it here.”

“I became interested in this maid cafe you were doing, but I felt awkward showing my face since we’re still in the middle of our fight, so I decided to wear this bear costume while checking things out.”

“That doesn’t make any sense.”

But Keiki understood what she wanted to say. Though he didn’t understand why she’d wear a bear costume.

“Where did you even get that from in the first place?”

“It was just laying around in the school’s storage shed.”

“Anyway, I’d like to have a calm conversation, so can we go back to the classroom for now?”

“Yeah…”

Taking the head of the costume in one hand, Keiki grasped the girls hand. After they returned to the classroom, Keiki put the head down on a nearby table. Next to him was Sayuki, slowly working on taking off the rest of the costume.

“So you were wearing a normal uniform inside.”

“What? Were you expecting me to be naked inside? Fufu, sorry about that.”

“Nobody was expecting anything.”

“……”

“……”

After teasing her Kouhai like she always would, the Senpai fell silent, and there was an awkward silence. Even though they wanted to properly have a talk with each other, once they had the other in front of them, they couldn’t find the right words.

After all, the two of them were still in the middle of a fight. And not to mention that they had said quite the harsh words to each other before.

“…I was always watching.”

“Eh?”

“How Keiki-kun and Koga-san were handing out flyers, how you started making pancakes to attract more customers… I saw how hard you were working through the window.”

“So you were watching us…”

She was lucky that she hadn’t been seen, otherwise she would’ve been reported as an intruder.

I started to feel so embarrassed when I was holed up at home. Even though everyone was working so hard for the calligraphy club, what was I doing? I was thinking things like that.”

“Sayuki-senpai isn’t at fault. The person at fault was me for saying all those horrible things to you. I ended up hurting you.”

“You mean the ‘Virgin-senpai’ comment? Don’t worry, I didn’t mind it that much.”

“No, not that. I meant that I said I preferred the student council over the calligraphy club.”

“That’s my fault. Even though Keiki-kun was worried about me, I called him ‘Virgin-kun.’”

“Well, I can’t say that that didn’t hurt…”

“Ah, I thought so.”

“But it’s true that I made you cry. —I’m sorry.”

“Keiki-kun…”

Keiki always regretted making Sayuki cry. But returning to the past to fix his mistakes was impossible. That was why, in order to not regret anything again, he decided to immediately apologize as soon as they saw each other again.

“…You see, there’s something that I couldn’t tell you.”

“What is it?”

“Recently, Keiki-kun seemed to be having a good time, right? You’ve been doing good work at the student council, and you’ve become close with Fujimoto-san.”

“Well, that’s true, I guess.”

“Koga-san told me. At this rate, even if we pay back the debt, Keiki-kun might still not come back to the calligraphy club.”

“Eh? Yuika-chan said something like that?”

“And the girls came up with some plan to take you back by force.”

“Ahhh, they were talking about some weird plan…”

During the sleepover, the girls had been talking something that sounded like that.

“But wait, Sayuki-senpai didn’t do anything, right?”

“Yes, I didn’t participate in that.”

“Why is that?”

“Keiki-kun ended up in the student council because of my mistake in the first place. I can’t be so selfish as to ask him to come back.”

“And is this what you weren’t able to tell me?”

“Yes, that’s right. I wanted you to come back, but that was the one thing that I just couldn’t tell you directly.”

Sayuki lowered her head, dejected.

“But when you told me that you preferred the student council… I thought… that I wanted to have Keiki-kun at my side. I can’t think of a calligraphy club without you.”

“Sayuki-senpai…”

Sayuki gave Keiki a beautiful smile, and he could feel his face burning up.

“Keiki-kun? What do you think?”

“I…”

Of course, it was an unfair question.

The girl liked to tease her Kouhai. And Keiki liked this teasing side of her. Not to mention that Keiki was working this hard to protect the calligraphy club in the first place, so the answer was obvious at this point.

“I want to stay in the calligraphy club. The club where Sayuki-senpai is.”

When she heard that, Sayuki couldn’t hold back her smile. Even though they were in agreement from the very start, they had gotten into a fight because of something small, and now they had finally managed to make up.

“But our current sales are rather depressing. At this rate, the calligraphy club will…”

“Ah, that should be no problem.”

“Eh?”

“Just leave the cafe to me. I have the perfect solution.”

“You do?”

“It’s not like I was just playing around all day while wearing that bear costume. I was studying what popular things the other classes were selling.”

“A bear investigation…”

“And after combing through all the different ideas I came across, I finally know how to save the store.”

“What is this magical method?!”

“Do you want to know?”

“Naturally!”

Sayuki nodded in satisfaction when she heard Keiki’s exclamation.

“Basically… Become an influencer!”

With complete confidence, the girl said something rather cheap.
